Albanian Dance

for Concert Band

This piece is based on part of the finale of the accordion concerto AccorDances which was written for accordion virtuoso Mark Stillman. The present version was commissioned by Jane Church and the East Lansing High School Concert Band, and was premiered in November, 2003 with the composer conducting.

This high-energy setting of the Albanian tune "Shota" re-creates the festive mood of a raucous village dance. Lively and rhythmically infectious, this piece is sure to please musicians and audiences alike! This can also be performed effectively at a more moderate tempo.

Duration: 2:45

Includes score and parts
